Should We Be Forced to Pay for New Gas Pipelines?

On February 25, the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities is holding a hearing about whether or not Eversource customers should be forced to pay for the giant Access Northeast pipeline project.  

We need to stand up and speak out. We should not be forced to pay for polluting new pipelines we don't need!

350 Mass will be doing a street action starting at 1:30 pm outside South Station (the Department of Public Utilities is located above the train station at 1 South Station, Boston). We will hold a large banner that says: "Big Sneaky Pipeline Meeting Happening Here," sing songs and hand out leaflets to get some public awareness.

We'll then attend the hearing, which starts at 2:00 pm and will probably go for a few hours. 
  • No need to pre-register to testify; sign-up on arrival.
  • Please dress in professional attire.
  • Bring ID. 
  • Here's some draft background information and possible talking points for folks who want to pre-write their testimony. We'll  be sending around sample testimony and finalized talking points this week. We'll also have talking points available there for those who just want to show up and testify. For feedback on your testimony, feel free to email your draft to [email protected].
  • We'll have small signs for folks to hold in the hearing room, although they may be taken away.
Shea Riester ([email protected]857-756-3730) will be bottom-lining for 350 Mass on the day of, so feel free to email, call or text if you have any questions!
